OUT OF THIS WORLD. For those who demand more than just the use of high quality materials such as gold or platinum, Piaget raises the stakes by unveiling several truly artisanal works, including the Altiplano Scrimshaw watch
The name Scrimshaw refers to a special engraving art from the 18th century on the bones of certain mammals. Wanting only the best in the field, Piaget commissioned Richard Maier, a special engraver of the particular art, to apply such technique on a watch dial. Maier then created a miniaturized world map on a dial made of a fossil mammoth tusk. The precious 38mm Altiplano Scrimshaw is offered in white gold with a black alligator leather strap and in pink gold with a brown alligator leather strap—each limited to 88 pieces.
